What are Dentures?

Dentures provide a practical solution for those who have lost most or all of their natural teeth, whether due to an accident or deteriorating dental health. They replicate the functionality of healthy teeth, enabling you to chew smoothly and comfortably without discomfort. Dentures are simple to manage and deliver an immediate remedy for significant tooth loss.

 

Crafted with prosthetic teeth attached to a base that mimics the color of gums, dentures can be anchored with or without the support of dental implants. We recommend scheduling a consultation to explore the various choices available and find the optimal solution tailored to your dental needs.

Who Might Need Dentures?

Dentures are a viable option for those who have lost some or all of their teeth due to injury, decay, or illness. If missing teeth are affecting your ability to eat or speak, or if they have altered your facial contour, dentures could be a solution worth considering.

5 Signs You Might Need Dentures

 

  1. Loss of Multiple Teeth: Whether due to damage or decay, if you’re missing several teeth, dentures can effectively restore your smile’s appearance and functionality.

  2. Challenges with Eating: Difficulty in chewing or biting effectively is a common sign that dentures might be needed to improve your dental function.

  3. Gum Discomfort: Persistent soreness or tenderness in your gums can often be due to underlying decay or gum disease, suggesting that dentures might be necessary.

  4. Changes in Facial Structure: A noticeable sunken look in your facial contours due to lost teeth can be rejuvenated with the help of dentures.

  5. Speech Difficulties: If missing teeth are impacting your ability to speak clearly, considering dentures might be a beneficial solution.

Types of Dentures

Complete Dentures. Used when all teeth are missing. They rest directly on the gums and offer a full replacement for your natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures. These offer enhanced stability by attaching to surgically placed implants in the jawbone.

Partial Dentures. Ideal for those with some natural teeth remaining. These help fill gaps and prevent other teeth from shifting.

Overdentures. Also called the Snap-in- Dentures, Removable and sitting over the gums, these can be supported by either implants or remaining natural teeth.

Immediate Dentures. Placed immediately after tooth extraction, they serve as a temporary solution while waiting for permanent dentures.

Common Questions About Dentures

What other options do I have?

If you’re looking for alternatives to traditional dentures, here are some of the most popular alternatives:

 

  • Dental Implants: This is the closest you can get to having your actual teeth back. These are like permanent new teeth placed in your jaw. They feel and look like real teeth and help keep your jaw healthy.

  • Implant-Supported Dentures: These dentures snap onto implants in your jaw. They don’t slip around and make eating and talking easier than regular dentures.

  • Overdentures: These are removable like regular dentures but clip onto a few implants or your remaining teeth, which helps them stay in place better.

  • Fixed Bridges: If you’re only missing a few teeth, a bridge might work. It’s stuck to your existing teeth and fills the gaps with false teeth that look natural and don’t come out

Each of these options has its benefits and considerations, and the best choice depends on your specific dental needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Are dentures covered by insurance?

Dental insurance policies vary, but many plans do cover some or all of the cost of dentures.

How do I clean dentures?

Traditional removable dentures require proper care to keep them clean, free from stains, and looking great. Below are some cleaning steps and things to avoid when using traditional removable dentures:

  1. Rinse After Eating. After meals, remove your dentures and rinse them under water to clear away food particles and other debris.

  2. Handle with Care. When cleaning your dentures, be gentle. Avoid bending the plastic or clasps which can damage them.

  3. Clean Your Mouth. After taking out your dentures, use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your gums, tongue, and palate.

  4. Daily Brushing. Brush your dentures daily using a soft brush and nonabrasive cleanser to eliminate food, plaque, and buildup.

  5. Soak Overnight. Keep your dentures in a mild soaking solution overnight to maintain their moisture and shape.

  6. Regular Checkups. Visit your dentist regularly to ensure your dentures fit well and to check your oral health.

 

Things to Avoid:

 

  • Don’t use abrasive cleaning tools or harsh toothpaste.

  • Avoid bleach and other harsh chemicals on your dentures.

  • Never use hot or boiling water, as it can warp your dentures.
